When it comes to electrical solutions, we are the experts here at Walker Electrical. Especially in commercial settings. So we know that whenever you encounter a commercial electrical problem, it can be a nightmare. If there are electrical problems that cut power to certain machines, appliances, or sections of the building, your company could face substantial losses. But what are the most common commercial electrical problems? And how can these be resolved?

What are the most common commercial electrical problems?

There are several commercial electrical issues that can arise from time to time. These can be divided into three categories:

  • one single item not working
  • multiple items not working
  • intermittent power supply

One item not working

When one single appliance or piece of machinery isn’t working, it could simply be a tripped fuse in the plug. You can try and replace the fuse within the plug, to see if this will rectify your issue. If it doesn’t, you must have a larger problem with your appliance.

To keep all of your electricals in good working order throughout the year, you should make use of a regular PAT test. The professionals at Walker Electrical can help you with this.

More than one item not working

If you have multiple items that aren’t working, there may be a problem with the fuse box. Initially, you can begin trouble shooting by checking your fuse box. If one of the switches has been tripped, it is probably because of a faulty electrical item plugged in somewhere within that system. Using a system of trial and error, you should be able to find the culprit and keep the rest of your electricals plugged in.

However, in a commercial setting this may have already caused a significant problem with computer work being lost, not to mention the loss of time.
If your problem turns out not to be a fuse box issue, you have a larger electrical problem that will require the attention of a qualified and registered electrician. Here at Walker Electrical, we are commercial electrical experts. Don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Intermittent Power

If you only have intermittent power, indicated by frequent power outages, you have a larger problem. Intermittent power indicates an issue with your circuitry or wiring, and will need the urgent attention of a professional.
